NEWCASTLE striker Callum Wilson vowed to reclaim his place in the England squad insisting he has "unfinished business".
He is confident he can score the goals for the Magpies which will make Southgate sit up and take notice.
And he was not considered for the Euros after suffering a hamstring strain in April.
But Wilson insists he can still play a key role in the build up to next year's World Cup in Qatar.
Wilson still managed 12 goals in 26 Prem appearances last term and was voted the Toon's Player of the Year.
"That's left a bitter taste in my mouth."
Wilson feels circumstances conspired against him after scoring on his England debut in 2018 and winning another three caps over the next 11 months.
He added: "Lockdown certainly didn't help, from a personal point of view, it came at the worst time. Although I only played four times for England, quite a lot happened in those games.
"I scored on my debut, had another one disallowed and hit the post. Every time I pulled on the shirt, I did myself justice.
"I was involved in the Nations Cup but when international football was due to return and I was looking to carry on where I'd left off, Covid struck.
"I feel I have a lot to offer England, not just in terms of my goals record but my physical attributes and leadership qualities."
